More than a Tarot School!

Sage Intuitive Tarot School is founded on the principle that tarot is an initiatory practice and healing tool that serves to deepen your connection to yourself and others.

Tarot is a tool for profound change, and in this evolving world, it facilitates personal and social growth.

I have personally found tarot to be a refuge and a reliable mirror.

Tarot is a complete system for true intimacy and compassion.

What I’ve learned from years of guiding hundreds of tender souls through immersive and year-long transformational programs over the last four years is that when you know and accept all of who you are, you become a great and loving vehicle of service in the world.

You will find, with consistent practice and a commitment to our community container, that you grow in confidence and strength.

When you join the school, you are becoming part of something bigger:

You are choosing to shift your perspective and serve all you come in contact with.

You can use tarot in workshops, courses, and circles. It’s also an extremely useful mentoring and coaching tool.

You may also want to read tarot professionally, and this school will help you increase your skills as a reader. It’s extremely important to me that tarot is used responsibly and ethically with clients, and by the end of the program you can be confident that you’re practicing in ways that truly help empower people.

Tarot is a tool that you can use to access your inner wisdom and intuition every day. Use it to spark dialogue and creativity, plan projects, and seek divine guidance. On a soul level, tarot is a portal to your higher consciousness.

It’s a bridge between the worlds &
A practical way to create magic! 

Tarot is a growing industry and is becoming embraced in the mainstream. More and more people from all spiritual and secular belief systems use tarot for guidance. My approach is non-dogmatic and open to everyone.

I go to the cosmic astral planes and am very down to earth at the same time. I encourage you to get curious while always trusting your own inner authority above all else.

I believe in the importance of legitimizing this incredibly beautiful magical system. In the school, you will learn how to trust the intuitive messages you receive and clearly relay them to others.

Intuitive knowledge is just as valuable as other ways of knowing.

“I have been waiting for a course like this for quite some time now and I was so thrilled that Vanessa put this offering out into the world. The course has taken me on a deep journey within and I have learnt so much about the tarot and about myself along the way.

I can see how my intuition and the messages have deepened over the course of the year. And it is so magical how things start making sense from a day to day level and beyond.

Vanessa and the community she has built are amazing and so, so very supportive. This course is a gentle approach to this profound wisdom but be prepared to get to know yourself on a deeper level. I am so grateful that this community and Vanessa’s teachings are a part of my everyday life. It is so rewarding and fulfilling. Thank you!”  — Alexandra Io Riederich

In a short period of time, Sage Intuitive Tarot School has given me an awareness and appreciation of the background and history of Tarot and a growing understanding of the symbology that has removed any fear that I had around tarot.

The class material is presented in a clear, accessible and engaging way with videos and our monthly community call. I really enjoy the engagement in our Facebook community, especially hearing from Stacy as she takes this journey with us too. It is encouraging and heart-warming.

Vanessa has managed to tailor the way she teaches to allow us to see if we are getting certain cards popping up in certain positions and tracking these cards through as a sub-story/message. It has been incredibly insightful and fascinating. — Jacqueline (U.K.)

Tarot is a 78 card deck that has been around since at least the 15th century. It was most likely first used as a card game and later developed into a divination tool.

It is divided into the major arcana and the minor arcana. The major arcana consists of 22 cards and represents your soul’s journey and archetypal lessons you learn over the course of your life, while the minor arcana helps you understand & explore your everyday life.

Today, interest in tarot has exploded, the industry is expanding in very exciting ways, and the possibilities are endless for how it will be used in the future. Tarot is a great business, personal and spiritual tool. It is adaptable to any interpersonal, community and service work you’re doing.

Now is the time to be part of this amazing tarot world!

Tarot came into my life as a child when a family friend pulled out his Rider-Waite-Smith deck after a dinner party. This was before computers or the internet, and I’d never seen anything like it. I was hooked with the very first card: the Fool!

The well-worn deck felt like a portal.
A way to step into the unknown.

In high school, I found my first deck in a dark, tiny, out of the way shop filled with books, crystals, cards, and incense. I choose the Hanson Roberts deck, and it still holds a very special place in my heart. Since finding my first deck, I’ve spent over 25 years studying, working with, and reading tarot for myself and others.

I love imagining new ways we can use this amazing tool!

When I first started drawing cards for myself I was comforted by the truth I saw reflected back at me.

They weren’t telling me everything was fine when it wasn’t but they did show me that I wasn’t alone.

They mirrored what I was afraid to say out loud & gave me boundless possibilities for my life.
